#1506: SkiSkin

Today’s invention is a ski outfit adaptation for novices in the sport.

The surface of the suit would be covered in numerous rubbery prongs (say 20mm long) so that when in collision with someone’s helmet or another skier’s body at speed, the novice would have an extra, lightweight impact barrier.

Falling on hard snow or ice, as happens about every 30 seconds, would also be cushioned.

In addition, the prongs would rapidly slow a skier who was sliding bodily down the slope, before too many subsequent crashes had occurred.
